    The Peterson was merely a reasonably clear explanation of the issue. Feel free to point out some actual particular about it that was misleading. For instance, does the 1974 act say something about "hints and wishlists" and then declare that compliance is voluntary?

    Meantime, let me make it simple for you:

    Is it, or is it not the case that the 1974 law requires both houses to pass a budget resolution? Yes, or no?

    Is it, or is it not the case that the Senate, having done this for years and years, has failed to do so for a handful of years now? Yes, or no?

    That ought to be simple enough for you. But thanks for your high school civics lesson. I haven't had to teach constitutional law for a few years, so I might have forgotten where spending bills originate. Good work—you'll get a gold star yet.

        If insulting arrogance bothers you, maybe you shouldn't have jumped in with your comment suggesting  my supposed ignorance based on a faulty education. I gave back only the puffed-up arrogance you chose to lead with.

        BTW: an apology would still be appropriate—not that I hold my breath in anticipation.
